Santa Kawaguchi December 18th

For his first visit Santa Claus will be at the Ario Kawaguchi. You can get your photo taken with him. They will start distributing tickets at 10 am at the center gate. They ask that if you arrive before opening they ask you to line up at the center gate. Presumably they will have some sort of sign to show you where. You can only receive one ticket per family, first come first served. They will give you a ticket with a time on it. Santa Claus will be available at three different times: ①11.30 am ② 1.30 pm and ③ 3.30 pm. But all tickets will be given out from 10 am. This event is strictly restricted to the first 50 families in line.

There is also currently night illumination in Kawaguchi City. You can find that information here. Furthermore, in a normal year Santa Claus normally also visits Kawaguchi Green Center. However, currently there is no information on their website about a visit this year. They may add it last minute, as several places have been doing that this year to deter big crowds. Or it could be that Father Christmas can’t make it to Green Center this year. There are many places he couldn’t visit this year, but thankfully he was able to squeeze in a few visits. You will find ten more places to visit Santa in the Greater Tokyo area here.
